No. If you have a dispute with a mechanic, he doesn't have to give the car back unless you pay him OR you go to the courthouse and deposit the money owed into a court trust account that can only be accessed by the mechanic if a judge decides that he is owed the money. Then you can have a judge decide who is right or wrong. But you must deposit the money. Otherwise he can put a lien on your car.
